PAX Countdown clock is off by an hour.

Hey,
I was writing a desktop gadget count down clock, and noticed that the PAX website's clock is off by an hour. It looks like in the source definiton for the jscript, the time is declared in PST (gmt-8) instead of PDT (gmt-7). 9/3 is still PDT, so it's off by an hour.

    Will the clock change before the countdown finishes?

    ...and when you are done with that; take a folding
    chair to Creation and then suplex the Void.

    DST doesn't end until November 7th in the US.

    Is there a better place to report this?

    Thanks,

    It might get more attention if posted in the PAX forum. http://forums.penny-arcade.com/forumdisplay.php?f=26

    I would suggest e-mailing Gabe, Tycho, or Robert Khoo given that they do not generally read the forums.

    I'm afraid not. The people who run the forums don't run the PAX site, there's nothing we can do about this I'm afraid.

    The best thing to do is always to email webmaster@<name of site>

    In this case webmaster@paxsite.com

    I'll pass along the info to Erika and it should be fixed tomorrow.

    Thanks! Yeah, I looked around the site for a webmaster@ link, but didn't see one. I've run across several sites that don't bother to set that account up any longer.
